Lunch with... Alastair Caldwell

He rose from cleaner to team manager at McLaren, walked out on Bernie Ecclestone and then found a way to fund a passion for fine cars Writer: Simon Taylor | Photographer: James Mitchell Spending a day or even an hour with Alastair Caldwell, listening to his fund of stories about Formula 1 from the inside 40 or more years ago, is an unforgettable experience. As a callow, penniless 24-year-old,...

Letters

Called to account Mark Hughes’ April column sums up brilliantly what us long-term addicts could not have done so pointedly. That having been said, we the spectators/paying public, have long been sacrificed to the Gods of the almighty dollar, as he states so well, but good luck getting any of them to react. May I suggest a running challenge and a new monthly feature for the FIA (Todt), Ecclestone...

Letters

April fuel I’ve just been reading about your article in April’s issue on your ideas for shaking up the world of F1. I was particularly interested in the use of the word ‘punkish’ to describe what the sport needs right now. This grabbed my attention as I happened to use the same language to describe the approach we’re taking on some of the work that we’re doing for motor racing, in particular F1...

All work no playboy

Forty years have passed since the sport lost one of its most misunderstood – and underrated – talentsWriter Andrew Frankel I’d known about the autobiography of Peter Revson for years, but never felt inclined to read it. Revson’s was a supporting role on the global motor racing stage: not a bit part for sure, but he was certainly no superstar either. Besides, Revson only got that far thanks to...

The second of Simon Taylor’s three-part American mini-series continues this month, as he meets Canadian Indycar star Paul Tracy. We...

McLaren: Life after Bruce

When the inspirational leader who drove the team died, McLaren could have spun into the ground. Instead it regrouped and vindicated his vision and his faith Words: Paul Fearnley. Photography: Alex P There was a lot to think about. But Bruce Leslie McLaren — boss/designer/engineer/tester/racer — preferred it that way. Three years of his New Zealand childhood had been spent in plaster, in traction...

Recent racing results

Last month we reported that Denny Hulme had won the first round of the Can-Am series with the latest McLaren M20, but only after a scare from Mark Donohue's turbo-charged Porsche 917/10. On July 9th the second round of the series was held and this time the Penske Porsche did win but with George Follmer driving and not Donohue who had crashed and injured his knee in unofficial practising. Hulme...

Road America

With only a week between the fifth and sixth rounds (and less than that to overhaul the machinery), a number of cars appeared at the Road America circuit in Wisconsin in far from perfect mechanical condition. The Shadow did not appear at all, although Elford did obtain a ride in an older but unsorted Lola T70. Another English driver making his second Can-Am appearance of the year was David Hobbs...
